  • Paris France Bibliothèque Nationale de France Lat. 11326
Script Uncial
Date VI–VII (580 - 620)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably in Italy, in the same scriptorium as the Bodleian manuscript of Canones (CLA 2.255). Was at Fleury: the openings 8v–9 and 16v–17 show running along the margins the ninth-century ex-libris which is now mostly erased: 'Hic est liber Sancti benedicti abbati de floriaco monasterii'. Later belonged to Christopher Justel (†1649), who gave it to the library of Sedan (see fol. Bv). On fol. 1 is the entry: 'Supplt. lat. 669'.

Script Commentary

Script is a careful and pleasing uncial, not of the oldest type: the bow of uncial A is thin; the tongue of uncial E is high; LL run together; S at line-end is often half-uncial; Y rises above the head-line; suprascript U is V-shaped; various ligatures including NTUR occur at line-end. The capitula on foll. 1–2 are in black Rustic capital: A is now with, now without the cross-bar; the second vertical of U and the third stroke of N descend below the line. Some marginalia in ordinary minuscule.
